EXHIBITIONS & EVENTS

Nov. 12 - Jan. 18, 2013
“SelvEDGE”

Nava Lubelski
Rutledge Gallery / Rutledge Building
Lubelski embroiders on used fabric over stains and rips, contrasting the accidental with the meticulous, constructing narrative from randomness and mistake. Her hand-stitched designs combine traditional sewing techniques and abstract painting which remove the object from functional purpose and elevate to art.  

Nov. 12 - Jan. 18, 2013
Factory Floor
Libby O’Bryan
Elizabeth Dunlap Patrick Gallery
Rutledge Building
O’Bryan’s artwork is informed by her
previous career in apparel production and current work as an “industrial seamstress.”

She explores the relationship between
maker, machine and consumer.
The environments she creates act
outside the commodity driven marketplace
as a means for contemplation about everyday decisions and
cultural norms.

Christine Kirouac: Siren Fall

Elizabeth Dunlap Patrick Gallery
Rutledge Building

Canadian artist, Christine Kirouac’s
work explores the "performance" of ethnicity and identity through lenses of cliché, storytelling, mimicry, and popular culture.
Kirouac’s videos and installations move
between enigmatic acts of personal
revelation and social observation,
blending elements of cinema,
theatre and documentary.
“Siren Fall” captures young Canadian
girls interpreting military fashion through
the filters of suburbia.
 

 

Feb. 4 - March 8, 2013

Sonya Clark: Material Reflex

Rutledge Gallery / Rutledge Building

“Material Reflex” explores Clark’s symbolic and innovative interpretation of materials and weaving processes as a reflection of personal and cultural identity. Drawing from her African-American, Scottish and Caribbean roots, Clark takes seemingly common objects such as a piece of cloth or a strand of human hair and transforms them into historical commentary, challenging the viewer to embrace the subliminal context. Clark is currently the chair of the Department of Craft/Material Studies at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia and most recently was recognized as a United States Artist Fellow.
